      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

No start on 1996 suburban.

Recommended Posts

I have a 1996 suburban 350 4 wheel drive "R" that fails to start. If I cycle the key/fuel pump several times it still doesn't start, but can hear pump running. When I spray starting fluid thru intake it fires right up and runs. 157,000 miles and fuel pressure regulator was replaced about 50-100 miles ago, I replaced regulator because I thought it might be the problem. Anyone out there have any ideas? Fuel pressure will be tested this evening or sometime tomorrow. I also have purchased a new fuel pump but have not installed yet. No codes stored in computer.

Thanks in advance for any input.

The spec is 60-66 psi. I would like to see at least 58 psi. The reason you need the high pressure is because the poppets (the mechanical injector that sprays the fuel onto the back of the intake valve) only open at a certain psi and higher. If its to low the poppets will never open.

I've seen and heard of it more times than I can remember. The only thing I can figure is that once its started there is vacuum in the intake. Since the difference in pressure is greater, it requires less fuel pressure to operate the poppets after the vehicle is running. What do you think 4WE?

I guess I dont know why, but I do know that 51 psi is to low and I know if it isnt atleast 57-58 psi they dont start. Your theory sounds good with the poppets, but I dont know. I could ask someone tomorrow, if I remember to.

A theory, when the engine turns over, the voltage jumps up a volt or so from the alternator turning and increases fuel flow from the weak pump. This is just an idea that struck me.

Not to beat a dead horse here, but when where you testing the fuel pressure?

Key on/eng. off, while cranking eng. over or after started with starting fluid and eng. at idle?

Maybe fuel pressure was fine after started???? Fuel pumps that are weak, do funny thing.

Air's idea I would say sounded the best grin

Ok, to start the engine it needs a richer mixture so by adding the extra fuel (ether) it starts, the poppets inside the injector is a high pressure poppet and doesnt give a good spray pattern to get the rich mixture for start up with low fuel pressure, but is enough to run the vehicle once it is going.
